Favorite songs? albums?

 

The album, Hot August Nights, Live at the Greek, 1972, is my hands-down favorite! It gets me dancing!! 

 

Sweet Caroline (of course), Red Red Wine, Kentucky Woman, Brother Love's Travelin' Salvation Show, to name a few!

@MaVolta,

How do I choose my favorite Neil song?

Shilo, You Don't Bring Me Flowers Anymore, of course Sweet Caroline, and Song Sung Blue are some of my most favorites.

I have the Moods LP album in vinyl, so I just pulled it out... OMG, Remember Gitchy Goomy and Porcupine Pie? Hee hee! Cat Happy N.
